Free States= allow the people in that area to live the way they want; no slavery was allowed there.

Slave States= were the TOTAL opposite of the free states. Here there was nothing but slavery. People were tortured, threatened, or even shot or hanged from their rightful owners. It gets worse. There was a law passed called fugitive Slave Law." Which was where when slaves run away they had to be returned to their rightful owners. These poor people had no freedom at all!

Well, I hope that this fully answers your question! Thanks for taking your time and using! you're the best! :):):):)
